Head coach Brad Collinson and his team with use the energy from the Homecoming crowd to motivate them in their clash versus their crosstown rivals. Early in the 2022 season both Concordia and McGill are still looking for their first wins, and this game will go a long way towards securing a playoff spot for the victor.
